  1. Steve – yeah! You are a courageous risk-taker; leading by example …

    I think “Perhaps I will build a successful business.” And when I type this I always think it sounds so selfish, but I won’t delete it this time! The business I am in will only succeed when I help others build their businesses… I want them to take my place! It is one founded on God first, family second, career third – who am I to keep this from any woman? Who am I to not share the opportunity to balance lives and make money. Last week you talked about risk – step out in spite of the fear … Perhaps … when I step out and reach out … risk what you might think of me … just perhaps a family will find freedom. Sunny

  2. Thanks Stephen. What an awesome quote! Couple our decisions to step out with God’s follow-up provision of wisdom, strength, etc – it’s a tough mix to beat. Have an awesome day!

  3. I celebrate your stepping out in faith to continue your masters. From W.H. Murray’s book ‘The Evidence of Things Not Seen” : “Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, the providence moves too. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamt would have come his way. I learned a deep respect for one of Goethe’s couplets: Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it!”
